An old-growth forest — also termed primary forest, virgin forest, primeval forest, late seral forest, or forest primeval — is a forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance and thereby exhibits unique ecological features and might be classified as a climax community. Old-growth features include diverse tree-related structures that provide diverse wildlife habitat that. Schoonmaker, Peter; McKee, Arthur.

Recent analysis by researchers at Oregon State University and the U.S. Forest Services Pacific Northwest Research Station suggests that old growth covered an average of 48 percent of the Coast Range over the past 3, years and that forests containing trees greater than 80 years old covered an average of 71 percent of the land.

Southern Coastal Oregon Abstract The coastal forests of Oregon are among the most biologically productive regions in the world. This high level of forest productivity enabled a large timber industry to grow in the region, and supply the area with its economic and cultural base.

Pacific NW Native Plants by Plant Community Western Hemlock-Douglas Fir Forest The most common plant community in the Pacific Northwest is dominated by large conifers, with a wide range of trees, shrubs and groundcovers as understory plants.

Salt marsh plants, such as pickleweed (Salicornia spp.) and saltgrass (Distichlis spicata), are uniquely adapted to the fluctuating coastal salt marsh environment, where their roots take a twice-daily bath in ocean water at high these plants die and break down, their stored nutrients enter the food web and provide a continual source of food for clams, crabs, and fish.

Riparian trees and shrubs are important providers of shade, bank stability, and woody debris needed for optimal stream quality and fish habitat in the coastal mountains of Oregon, but more data are needed to relate this woody vegetation to environmental variables.
